Buffalo Sabres Head Coach Lindy Ruff and Lee Evans, Melvin Fowler and Eric Powell of the Buffalo Bills joined exempt bowlers from the Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour Wednesday night at AMF Thruway Lanes in Cheektowaga, N.Y., for the Etonic Championship Pro-Am.
The pro-am coincided with the 2006 Etonic Championship, the third stop on the Denny's PBA Tour, which begins Thursday morning and runs through Sunday's live ESPN televised finals at 1 p.m. EST.
Ruff, the longest tenured coach in the NHL, has guided his Sabres squad to an NHL best record of 12-1-1, including Sunday night’s 4-3 overtime win over the New York Rangers.
Evans, the Bills’ first round pick in 2004, has 39 catches for 486 yards and two touchdowns on the year. Peters, the Bills’ starting left tackle from the University of Arkansas, signed with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2004. Powell, a defensive end from Florida State, has signed with the Bills after spending two years in NFL Europe.
Three more Etonic Championship Pro-Ams will be held at AMF Thruway Lanes Saturday at Noon, 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. EST
Fans interested in bowling in Saturday’s Etonic Championship Pro-Ams should contact AMF Thruway Lanes at 734-946-9092.
